Perfect Dark to make a Perfect return?! (Rumor)

March 8, 2015

I’m still really surprised people care about Conker, I don’t and probably will not ever understand the appeal behind the character. He’s literally a perversion of the cute little video game/ Cartoon characters I grew up with. Apparently there were talks of a Conker  reboot at some point but insomniac  studios turned down that idea. What I find SUPER interesting is the bit at the end of this quote-

“However, Insomniac turned MS down too. Apparently MS wanted Conker to hit store shelves by the end of 2015, and Insomiac refused because of the short dev cycle. MS wanted Conker out the door really quickly, because they wanted to reintroduce audiences to a bunch of older IPs that MS were planning on rebooting for 2016-17, like Perfect Dark and Banjo.” (source)

I hope they avoid this look, you're just asking for trouble.

                   I hope they avoid this look…

All though this is all speculation based on conjecture just the mere MENTION of a Perfect Dark reboot has got my eyebrows waggling like crazy. A modern Perfect Dark would be amazing and could possibly erase the memory of Perfect Dark: Zero. I’m seriously hoping this rumor has some kind of truth to it. We’ve already heard the rumors of a new Banjo/Kazooie game so maybe there’s some truth to all this.

Now that I think about it, how would Perfect Dark fare in today’s shooter saturated market? how could they distinguish it from all the dark and edgy futuristic shooters that are out now? This would be an excellent chance to showcase Joanna Dark as a strong, capable female character.Both camps could  win if a new Perfect Dark were to be released, Polygon and Anita Sarkeesian get another character to possible rag or not rag on for clicks and controversy and the rest of us who don’t care about all that get a new adventure set in the world of Perfect Dark.

I seriously hope this is all true..not the Conker bit, no, thank you!
